Today's postal delivery brought a very cool thing to The Fat Man's hands. A muzzle device... a flash suppressor... a very pointy reminder of the dangerous end of this rifle. This special accessory for the PTAC (El Cheapo) upper's barrel came by way of Chuck Bogardus, a fine machinist and all round good guy out of St. Louis. In his mad scientist machine shop, he hand crafts muzzle devices like this flash suppressor, and also muzzle brakes. 5.56 or 30 caliber, his product is pretty damn nicely made. I paid $25 for this beauty, shipping included. Chuck's work is good, and his prices reasonable. The thing is..... no one will find this device in a store or catalog. There's one man, and one man only, who makes these. If you just have to have something this special for your rifle, contact Chuck at email@example.com, or friend him on Facebook (facebook.com/thebogie). Herself, already liking this AR I put together, took a gander at this after it was installed. She pricked her finger on the sharp points, and then pretty much declared it her rifle now. Damn.
